Video shows disgraced deputy outside school during massacre


The Broward County Sheriff’s Office has released video of the armed security resource officer who was criticized for his actions during the Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead.

A judge ordered the release of the video of Scot Peterson, whose lawyer has said the former deputy “is confident that his actions on that day were appropriate under the circumstances” and that video and eyewitness testimony “will exonerate him of any sub-par performance.”

“The video speaks for itself. His actions were enough to warrant an internal affairs investigation, as requested by Sheriff Scott Israel on Feb. 21. After being suspended without pay, Peterson chose to resign and immediately retired rather than face possible termination,” the Sheriff’s office said Thursday, according to BuzzFeed.
